Melissa Joan Hart Schools Caroline Rhea on Parenthood

Melissa Joan Hart and Caroline Rhea are no strangers to one another — the pair starred on the television show Sabrina, The Teenage Witch together for years. While many may believe that Caroline, 44, who portrayed Melissa’s aunt, would be the bossy one, it is just the opposite when it comes to the topic of parenthood. Caroline, who is expecting her first child — a daughter — any day now with boyfriend Costaki Economopoulos, told OK! at a Project A.L.S. event in New York City that Melissa "literally said, ‘I cannot wait to boss you about this baby.’"

"She’s so bossy … I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m new.’ It is ironic that she’s younger than me."

Melissa, 32, does have a leg up on her former costar in that aspect, as she is already mother to sons Mason Walter, 2 ½, and Braydon ‘Brady’ Hart, 7 months, with husband Mark Wilkerson.

Did you take advice from friends who entered parenthood first? Or did you tune them out?

One of my best friends had a daughter two months before me and she was saying, ” You’ll be doing this and that and be really tired and have no social life!” and I was really scared and the only advice she gave me was, ” You should have used contraception!” The cheek of her!
I ignored her, and as it turned out, I wasn’t that tired and I have a lot more time for friends with my son!
My son and my best friend’s daughter play together all the time. I think they’ll marry when they’re older!
Perhaps Brady Hart will marry Rhea’s little girl??

I was the first of my friends to have kids, so no advice came from them. I was pregnant at the same time as 2 co-workers. We shared how we were feeling and our excitement with each other.

Now, I am a “bossy” friend to others! I had 2 kids before any of my friends had 1, so I love to give advice. They may tune me out, but they seem to like it, since they ask me all the time.

I saw Melissa with her two boys and family at the GA Aquarium on Saturday. She looked so cute! Her boys are beyond adorable. It was so neat to see her like everyone else!

YAY! That made my day!

I seem to be the go-to person in my group of friends even though I have no kids but after 2 years as a nanny to 4 kids at 18 years old, that seems to make me qualified in their eyes lol. That and when I’m in doubt, I call my mom (who’s also a doc).

One of my girlfriends has a daughter already so I ask her for advice from time to time. She’s not pushy about it though.
